Graduate Research Assistant
I am a graduate research assistant working on the TIME project (‘The impairment of memory in Epilepsy’). In 2014 I graduated from Bangor University with a First in BSc Psychology. I then moved on to study at the University of Bath, where I obtained my Masters of Research in Psychology in 2015. During this time I worked on research projects looking at a range of phenomena, such as working memory, global and local processing mechanisms and autism spectrum disorder. These experiences have fuelled my keen interest in cognition and neuropsychology, and in my pursuit to learn more about these fields I joined the TIME project in December 2016.
My main responsibility in this role is to support our investigation into the effects of anticonvulsant medication on memory in patients with TEA. I am also involved in the day to day running of the project overall, working closely with Dr Savage and Professor Zeman.
